SUPER SPRINT TRIATHLON
The Super Sprint (aka Short Course) is a great race for older children and adults.
It’s a speed race for young, fit athletes, and a non-daunting race for participants new to triathlons, or who don’t have time/desire to train for a longer event.
Although the bike leg is much shorter than the Long Course, the eight hairpin turns ensures it is still a challenging course.
150 m (3 lengths)
6 km (4 laps)
2 km (2 laps)
– Swimmers, swimming cap, goggles
– Bike – any bike is fine, just make sure your tyres are pumped up and brakes are in good working order
– Helmet, singlet or shirt (torso must be covered on the bike and run)
– Shoes (and possibly socks)
– Water & Towel
Starting in the deep end of the pool, competitors swim around the buoy at the shallow end and then around the three buoys in the deep end before exiting at the shallow end.
After running your bike out to the mount/dismount line, it’s four laps of the L-shaped course.
The race finishes with two laps of Lawson Park.
If you’re new to triathlons and you’re not a confident swimmer, you are welcome to start at the back of the pack and wear flippers.
Teams are welcome! Big Devil triathletes often put a team together to compete in this event as well.
If this course looks too easy … it’s time to step up to our Long Course
